mIRC beta - 08/09/10 10:12 AM

The mIRC beta is a version of mIRC that is not yet ready for public use and is being made available for testing purposes only.

We need feedback to resolve any issues in the beta before we can release a final, stable version of mIRC for public use.

You should only download the beta if you are willing to spend time dealing with bugs and submitting bug reports.

Please see the following post, if there is one, for the latest beta release and a list of changes.

Beta v7.57.669 changes:
1.Item 11, https://forums.mirc.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/265834
Partial rewrite of code that affects /run, /url, /exit -nr, opening
DCC Files received folder, etc. The /exit -nr command needs to call
ShellExecute() synchronously, the opposite of other commands which
were fixed for https://forums.mirc.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/265736
2.Item 12, added.
3.Item 13, fixed.
4.Item 14, fixed.
5.Item 15, fixed.
6.Item 16, performed CppCheck on the source code.

Several issues were fixed, though most were mitigated in other ways so
were unlikely to cause issues, and others required a specific, unlikely
context to be triggered.

A large number of 32/64bit portability issues identified which will
need to be changed over time for 64bit version.

Beta v7.57.528 changes:
1.Item 1, https://forums.mirc.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/265799
2.Item 2, changed.
3.Item 3, https://forums.mirc.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/265806
4.Item 4, https://forums.mirc.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/265805
5.Item 5, https://forums.mirc.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/263520
6.Item 6, https://forums.mirc.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/265812
7.Item 7, optimized.
8.Item 8, fixed.
9.Item 9, added. A large amount of DPI-related code has been added,
including detecting DPIs on different monitors for different windows
and on different versions of Windows, detecting DPI changes for top
level windows, scaling/resetting fonts to match DPI changes, changes
to dialog tabs to handle different size fonts, and so on.

However, most of the code is currently disabled as more work is
needed. mIRC uses a number of DPI APIs, some of which are only
available in the latest update to Windows 10.

10.Item 10, fixed. If files are present, such as with a new install,
they are used. If no files are present, the internal defaults point
to $mircdir. This is partly necessary for backwards compatibility
but the method has been improved.

Changes:
1.Fixed $+ not correctly reporting string too long errors.
2.Changed installer setting to make it DPI aware.
3.Changed $findfile() to preserve multiple spaces inside a wildcard
parameter.
4.Fixed /reload interacting incorrectly with Script Editor when a new,
unedited file is created.
5.Fixed $parms returning incorrect values in some contexts.
6.Fixed DCC trust user list bug that prevented autoget from working
correctly for trusted users.
7.Optimized SendMessage() processing to use less memory.
8.Fixed SendMessage() gpf bug where recursive calls result in a stack
overflow.
9.Updated several features to be DPI aware.
10.Fixed incorrect default location for alias, popup, and remote
scripts when no files are present.
11.Fixed /exit -nr not restarting mIRC.
12.Added /run -a switch to request running as administrator.
13.Fixed script editor bug that was wrapping excessively long lines,
resulting in script errors, instead of truncating them.
14.Fixed SendMesage() handling of negative indexes.
15.Fixed richedit control handling bug that may have caused some
editbox-related code to behave incorrectly if the richedit control
failed to load.
16.Fixed a number of issues identfied by CppCheck, relating to range
checking, memory initialization, and pointer dereferences, that had
the potential to cause gpfs or unexpected behaviour.
